YORK- Citizens of a small Nebraska town are concerned about the city’s financial crisis.
the mayor of York held a town meeting Monday at a packed Holthus Convention Center to discuss how the city can get out of the red.
According to mayor Orval Stahr, York has been spending more money than they have been making. He says the city’s reserve account is gone as well as its checking account.
Orval spent over half an hour asking for comments and solutions from the citizens who attended the meeting.
One solution from the board is that they raise the property tax levy, which is .69 cents, by half, and cut funding from numerous city departments.
The mayor sat with city officials to discuss solutions and said there will be more meetings in the future to address these possible solutions.
